Wie, yet to start her second round, is looking to emulate Babe Zaharias, who made the cut at the 1945 Tucson Open.

Lewis, a journeyman professional with two career wins in 16 seasons on tour, mixed two bogeys with six birdies and an eagle to finish 13 under on 129.

Overnight leader Hunter Mahan of the United States and Japan's Shigeki Maruyama were two strokes adrift on 131.
